This course is the next step in increasing your knowledge and developing your skills to make your diving even safer and more enjoyable. If you're aged 15 or over then you're ready for action. The course consists of 5 dives, each of them explores a new area of diving, like deep diving, wreck diving, navigation or underwater photography. It is a playful course, giving you experience and control in the water by simply diving with different purposes and goals. Bottom line, the course is awesome, and it for sure does not get less special if done on a beautiful tropical island, just like Koh Phi Phi!
There are many reasons why travelers flog the beaches of Koh Phi Phi. For sure, the island itself is one point. It is tropically lush and has an atmosphere that has its visitors extending their stay again and again. (So be sure to book enough extra nights, or you might have to sleep on the beach!). It is forever LOVED for its white beaches, clustered hippie village atmosphere and the famous parties.
You gotta be out a bit early! Koh Phi Phi is, for good reasons, one of the most popular islands in Thailand. The rooms get completely booked out in peak season, and you will understand why when you get there. The island has everything from the crazy fairy-looking wooden bar on the beach with stunning sunsets to some of the best Thai cuisine we’ve ever tasted. It is hard to describe the narrow little merchant streets that the Phi Phi village is made of, they have to be experienced. And so does the parties. They are hard to find alike! Just remember to wait until you finish your course… cause you will most likely be up all night.
The PADI Advanced Open Water course will get you even more comfortable
in the water by simply completing five adventure dives under the
supervision of a PADI Instructor. If you're looking to build your
confidence and gain more experience, this is the natural next step on
the ladder. The course is designed so you can go straight into it after
the Open Water Diver course. The course builds on what you've already
learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new
activities in diving.
The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is performance based. That means
you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water
skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary
slightly from course to course. The course will take 2 to 3 days
depending on the students enrolled. 5 dives will be spread out on the
available days. No more than 3 training dives will be conducted each
Please allow a minimum of 24 hours, after your last dive, before flying.
(some countries will allow you to fly after 18 hours on land).
